Military Headwear Market Outlook - 2027

The military wearables are the equipment used by soldiers during the missions or military exercises. The technology reduces troop causalities across the globe. There are several types of military wearables such as headwear, eyewear, and bodywear. Military headwear includes virtual reality headwear and augmented reality headwear. Augmented reality headwear are mainly used in military for training purposes. Such headwear helps soldiers in training of combat situations or other hazardous missions. An augmented reality simulation enables the soldiers of training real-like combat situations without the risk of death or an injury. The military uses virtual reality in a variety of ways to tackle different situations and focus on different strengths. Some of the most common uses of VR in the military include the virtual boot camp, flight simulation, battlefield simulation, medic training on the battlefield, as well as vehicle simulation. The other benefits of military headwear include their withstanding capability in sustaining harsh environmental conditions such as high temperatures, inside the water and others. 

COVID-19 Scenario analysis:

  • Due to COVID-19 situation, the production rate of military headwear industries across the globe has been hampered due to the declared lockdowns and government restrictions on public gatherings.
  • Training exercises such as Pitch Black 2020, Milan 2020 has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 situation, which may impact procurement of military headwear.
  • There will be a considerable rise in demand for military headwear post COVID-19 as the combat exercises will start resuming.
  • As governments spending shift towards economic recovery due to COVID-19 pandemic, industries may experience reduction in quantity of order for military headwear equipment.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers and impact analysis

Increase in need for soldier coordination & training, rise in asymmetric warfare, alleged geopolitical conflicts, and soldier modernization programs are the factors that drive the growth of military headwear market. However, procurement of conventional warfare systems rather than advanced military wearables by emerging economies are hampering the growth of military headwear. Although development & incorporation of advanced technologies to overcome deficiencies to existing military headwear and integration of augmented reality (AR) & virtual reality (VR) in headwear is opportunistic for the future growth of military headwear market.

Integration of augmented reality and virtual reality

Modern militaries are using advance technologies such as augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) for training of their soldiers. The integration of augmented reality and virtual reality provide soldier a real warlike scenario for training. Further, such technology also reduces significant amount of training cost of troops. In addition, it improves safety as risk of injury gets eliminated. Hence, integration of augmented & virtual reality will generate demand of military headwear such as augmented reality headwear, virtual reality headwear, and thereby will contribute in the growth of the global military headwear market.
